We are in Lancaster county near Lancaster. Most folk recognize the name as a destination point to see the Amish and Mennonite country first hand. It is by no means the only place, but this area draws huge crowds.
For the Bible minded there is a full scale model of the Old Testament Tabernacle. The Mennonite Church host’s it. The Mennonite Center gives a history of the Mennonite and Amish religions. Very interesting. Lots of Amish cooking advertised. I like the style of cooking but it is pricey and doesn’t taste any better than good home cooking. (BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO COOK). Many of the restaurants serve the food family style, and you usually eat with total strangers, not always bad.
The Amish farms are all so neat, and I love the horse and buggy transportation. You can actually hire an Amish/Mennonite person to travel with you in your car/van and describe the sites and highlights. Of course there are the number of Tourist traps that accompany a destination.
Sherry and I are normally not your average tourists. The most of the time we enjoy the natural sites. Such as driving the back roads ooo’in and aaaaahing at the farms, animals and crops. ONCE in a while stopping at an Amish stand and buying a ‘Shoo Fly Pie’ or the like.
One of the big entertaining spots here is the ‘Sight and Sound Theater’. We were here years ago to see a play and I became fascinated. I had never seen a big production ‘anything’. Our experience was the great outdoor dramas: ‘Horn in the West’, ‘Unto these Hills’, ‘Trail of Tears’, ‘Okalahoma’, Hatfields and McCoys and the Lost Colony just after Andy Griffith left the production.
So seeing an indoor play big enough to have live horses, elephants and the like, was SOMETHING to me. I am interested to see how they deal with Jonah and the Whale. As I mentioned we usually take advantage of God’s Shows in Nature. We seldom pay to go to a ‘Show’. I told Sandie I was not a cheap skate, but corrected that, maybe I am. The price per ticket now is $50. The Millennium Theater seats 2000 people. they do 10 shows a week. They were sold out until the 2nd of August. SO, Yes, we will go, along with thousands of other folks. But that will be out entertainment until I see those Lobsters brought to my table, 4 for $30, up in Kennebunk LOL.
We will do a report on Jonah after the show.
Thanks for coming this way.
If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from? (don’t answer)
I call this Sheila’s car. She sent me this from the triad area of NC. I haven’t been able to nail it down. It is circa 1936. Maybe a Lincoln? I don’t know what it is but I like it.
This is a Hudson Terreplane it is close.
